One of a kind cabin located within grand te… – vrbo gas finder mn


Our cabin has a spectacular location, directly in front of the Grand Teton peaks. A rare National Park in-holding, the cabin is on the border of Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest, looking out over the Park and offering superb hiking out the back door.

The cabin is located on Shadow Mountain, so named because the Grand Teton casts its shadow on this exact spot when the sun sets behind the mountains. This is the place for viewing gorgeous mountain sunsets, each one unlike any other, with rays of light beaming off the peaks for just a few moments before the starlit evening descends.

The cabin is set in a 1-acre open meadow filled with wildflowers in the summer. It is away from other homes, but it doesn’t feel remote. It is a quick 10-minute drive – or a lovely bike ride – down to the National Park entrance and Dornan’s grocery store, restaurants and legendary wine shop. There is a warm springs nearby where children chase tiny minnows with their nets while their parents practice kayak rolls. Herds of bisonand antelope roam on the flats below the cabin. It is a 25-minute drive to the town of Jackson, where there is much to explore and enjoy. It is about a one-hour leisurely drive to the south entrance of Yellowstone National Park, where we recommend you plan to spend the night to allow enough time to explore the world’s first national park.

The location of this cabin can’t be beat for touring the Tetons! Our family of 3 stayed here for 4 nights, using it as our home base for touring the area from Jackson Hole on the south to Jackson Lake on the north, and the proximity to the park’s main entrance is nearly unbeatable. And while the cabin is remote, there are a few neighbors within close proximity, but you are really secluded due to topography and trees, so you *feel* as though you are truly alone. And what a view from the deck and yard area, where we hung out in the evenings and built a fire in the firepit, just amazing! Better yet, the stars at night took my breath away. The cabin itself is quaintly rustic, but from my perspective having owned an older cabin, that is where its charm shines for me. While the cabin is not new or updated, it is really quite comfortable (we used the cast iron stove for heat on chilly nights rather than turn on the baseboard heaters), it is clean enough for an older cabin (who doesn’t have cobwebs in their corners in the middle of the woods? I have them and I live in the city!), and most importantly, the has what you need at the end of the day in the park… comfort, silence, relaxation. Had it been available for a longer period of time during our trip, we would have stayed on longer. The bed was comfortable (though my 9-year old daughter was too scared to sleep in the bunk room, but that’s not a criticism, that’s just her), so we also used the pull-out couch which was a bonus because otherwise she would have been in with us. We used the grill for dinners and the stovetop and toaster-oven for breakfast. There are charming touches of the builder/owner in every corner, which were so much fun to see (my favorites were the star finder and the owners 15-plus-year’s-worth-of-summer’s handwritten weather log). We brought games along with us, but there were plenty in the cabin, as well as stacks and stacks of books, so my goal of a "no technology" week was met successfully! I’m thankful to Candra for sharing her family’s cabin with us, I simply love its story!
